Amid the arguments concerning the exclusive fishing rights in the West Philippine Sea, Magdalo party-list Rep Gary Alejano has mocked the intelligence of Senate President Tito Sotto.

Alejano made a comment after Sotto claimed that it was difficult to identify or distinguish the country’s exclusive fishing zone.

“Talino! Hanapan natin ID ang mga isda. Pag walang ID, no entry.,” the defeated Otso Diretso senatorial candidate said on Twitter

“Pag di marunong magtagalog, porener yan! Alejano added

Earlier, Sotto argued that it was hard to define the country’s exclusivity of marine resources when it is underwater.

“It’s very difficult to say that there is exclusivity when it’s underwater,” Sotto said as reported by the ANC

“The fish could be coming from China and the fish from the Philippines could be going to China,” he added

Sotto, however, clarified that: "My comment on WPS and its resources was a tongue-in-cheek statement. Sadly, kaunti lang ang nakaintindi (Sadly, only a few can understand)."
